Permethrin (Lyclear equivalent) Cream 5% 30g

Details

Permethrin cream is a treatment for the scabies infestation that can clear an infestation as quickly as just 8 hours. After just one treatment, you could be free from scabies and ready to get back to your normal routine. It can be used by people of all ages and treats the entire body with each application.

The active ingredient Permethrin is part of a group of insecticides known as pyrethroids. This means that Permethrin works by affecting any insect it comes into contact with, paralysing and killing scabies. Although Permethrin is toxic to insects, it’s much less toxic to people, as our bodies can break down the substance much more quickly. This makes this cream the perfect way to treat infestations such as scabies.

 

Apply to clean, dry, cool skin. Do not take a hot shower or bath before using this treatment. Rub the cream directly into the skin until you cannot see it any more, making sure to pay attention to areas such as between the fingers and toes, under the nails, wrists, armpits, external genitalia, breasts, and buttocks. Be sure to use enough cream to cover the entire body, as in the following guidelines:

  • Adults and children over the age of 12: One 30g tube of cream should be enough to cover the whole body, but do not apply to the head and face. In some cases, a further tube may be needed for full-body coverage, but you should never use more than 2 tubes at a time.
  • Elderly (over 65 years old): Apply the same amount of cream used for adults, but be sure to cover the neck, face, ears, and scalp as well. Avoid the area around the eyes.
  • Children aged 6 - 12: Half a tube of cream (15g) should be enough to cover the whole body, but do not apply to the head and face.
  • Children aged 2 - 5: A quarter of a tube of cream (7.5g) should be enough to cover the whole body, but do not apply to the face and head.
  • Children aged 1 - 2: A quarter of a tube of cream (7.5g) should be enough to cover the whole body, but be sure to cover the neck, face, ears, and scalp as well. Avoid the area around the eyes and mouth as the cream could be licked off.
  • Children aged 2 months - 1 year: Up to an eighth of a tube (3.75g) should be enough to cover the whole body, but be sure to cover the neck, face, ears, and scalp as well. Avoid the area around the eyes and mouth as the cream could be licked off.

Leave the cream in place for at least 8 hours. Wash off with soap and water within 12 hours of application. If you wash your hands within 8 hours of using this cream, be sure to re-apply Permethrin to the hands.
